4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Pours a clear copper with orange tones and a medium frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting. Hoppy aroma is a sweet citrus with hints of spices. Spicy flavor is sweet and hoppy with hints of grapfruit. Has a creamy sticky mouthfeel with a flavorful bitter finish. Very refreshing and delicious.

Clear golden color, wispy white ring with lacing. Mango, papaya, spice, and a touch of caramel in the nose. Light bodied, lasting finish, very drinkable. Big hop flavor, good balance with an assertive bitterness but malt to back it up. Very refreshing and enjoyable. Would gladly have another!

16 oz can. Pours a hazy gold with subtle orange highlights. Slight white head that dissipates. Aroma is a citrus and hop mix, slight fruitiness. Taste is a crisp grapefruit, citrus and hop blend. Very nice hop forward Pale Ale.

From can. Pour caramel color with moderate head. Decent hop flavor but not particularly citrus or piney. More bitter than anything - I like bitter but prefer more flavor with it. Malt blend is not particularly interesting. Decent pale ale but not blowing my hair back. I hope Sun King explores further to differentiate themselves in a crowded field.

I poured a 16 oz can into a shaker at a now-forgotten bar in downtown Indy. A lovely deep tan color, this smelled tantalizingly of fresh hops and honey sweetness. As these aromas suggested, this was a bigger, more robust apa than what you might normally expect from a local start-up microbrew. The carbonation was a bit too much, but overall this left a pleasant sensation across the middle and tip of the tongue. A nice offering.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2011 Poured from growler a coppery, very clear color with a white head and lots of lacing from an aggressive pour. Aroma of citrus but not real strong. Light body with some bitterness and I can taste the hoppiness, but again, not real strong. Beer is a little thin with some bitterness. Thing is, I kinda like the taste and I think this would be a good beer to drink all day long by the pool, as I did today, minus the pool.

A "mild" pale ale. On the can it says west coast style but to me not very hoppy and this is a pretty fresh can. And I say not too hoppy as someone that isn’t much of a hophead. Tasty and very mild pale ale. Nice color, not much aroma, but tasty.

Draft at the Fort Wayne release party at CS3. Not bad at all, though I made the mistake of having this right AFTER their jungle room impy IPA blew my socks off, and my taste buds, lol. Came across as sessionable and simple, a fun little pale ale that I wouldn’t have guessed was dry hopped before reading the description above, but good... I liked it.
